Hello and welcome to Year 6's class page.
Our Autumn term topic - World War II
How could Hitler have convinced a nation like Germany to follow him?
This term, pupils will be studying World War II as our topic. They will be learning about the events leading up to the start of the war, how the war affected Britain and Germany and what life was like in wartime Britain. We will be learning songs from that era and looking at the posters that were used as propaganda.
Our topic will include a trip to Eden Camp on Thursday 7th November.
We will also be inviting all parents to join us for our topic celebration on Monday 16th December at 3pm. Come along to enjoy a wartime supper with songs and facts prepared by your children.
Our class novel
When he goes out into the old rickety garage, he comes across a mysterious being living beneath spider webs and eating flies for dinner. This creature calls himself Skellig, and over the weeks Michael and his new friend Mina bring Skellig out into the light, and their worlds change forever!
This half term Year 6 children will be reading the novel Skellig by David Almond. This is recognised as an outstanding children's book that has won prizes and awards. Children will read a snippet a day with the class teacher at the end of the day and have reading lessons based on parts of the book.
Watch this space for examples of amazing learning produced from our reading!
Our PE day is Tuesday! Please make sure that your child has their PE kit on this day. Not sure about what they can wear? See below.
During Summer months:
Children are asked to wear black shorts and a white t-shirt. As most of the PE sessions will be outside, children will also need a change of footwear. Children should wear either trainers or pumps.
During Winter months:
Children are asked to wear tracksuit bottoms (black or grey) and a white t-shirt. Some PE lessons will be taught inside, so children should also bring shorts.
